About Dirk

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there!

I am a Cincinnati realtor that works from home, runs an Airbnb and loves dogs. I have owned raised and trained 2 Labrador Retrievers who have passed away, and 2 Doberman Pinschers who now live with my mother. Ironically I do not currently have a dog living with me so that I can have freedom to travel without worrying about finding a sitter. But I miss having a furry ball of joy around the house. I occasionally dog sit for my mother and for a friend in the military when they are away. I live in the city, and can walk everywhere I normally go with a dog. Findlay Market, Washington Park Dog Park, multiple out door festivals, and my favorite bar "Neons" (which allows dogs) are all walking distance from my place, as is all of OTR. I dont have a yard, but I havent ever needed one. My neighbor allows visiting dogs to use his yard to play, and closest park is 2 blocks away! I am new to this site, but very experienced with dogs. I have personally trained, bread, and shown dogs past the advanced level, and I have read and follow the techniques of Caesar Milan. I would love to meet your dog and give them the attention we all know they need while you are away!
